"Paws" was launched at Aston Marina on Tuesday 8th April 2014 for her trials and official handover. She then moved to her first official "home mooring" at Fazeley Mill Marina, just outside Tamworth. In 2018, she changed her mooring to Kings Bromley Marina (by Lichfield), and in 2020 moved again to Bosworth Marina (on the Ashby Canal). She is mostly out-and-about exploring the waterway system.
Originally, there was a link on this page to find out our actual location in real time. As part of the upgrading of our site to permit secure 'https' connection, I found that the "Water Explorer" website didn't fully comply with 'https' so I was forced to link directly to the page rather than embed it here.
Details of the planning and tracking software are also available.
In 2021, I added a daily mooring position from "what3words" (a system which uses three words to uniquely describe a 3m square of ground worldwide - see their website ) for more information.
Unfortunately, Water Explorer shut down its server at the beginning of 2023, so no real-time tracking is now available, but overnight positions are still shown on the "Where are we?" page and the current monthly diary.
